Public servants to strike in 7 days over NHIF rates

19 June 2015, 14:12 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Public Servants will go on strike in 7 days time unless the recent NHIF deductions are revoked, their unions have said.

The unions dismissed NHIF as a cash cow and warned of a strike within 7 days of Friday's notice if the NHIF management went ahead to deduct public servants salaries towards payments of the new rates.

The notice comes just a few weeks after the High Court temporarily stopped the new rates, after the Kenya National Union of teachers sought to have the deductions stopped with immediate effect.

KNUT complained that the new rates of between KES 150 and KES 1,700 per contributor were too much and that with its poor track record, NHIF would collect KES 2.3 billion every month to no avail.

" We urge the government to withdraw the new rates or force us to take to the streets to force the issue," they said in a statement Friday.

More to come....
